Washingtonian magazine’s annual “100 very best restaurants” issue (January 2012) is out (on newsstands, possibly in your mailbox, but not online) and both Nava Thai and Ruan Thai made the list. This is not the best cheap restaurant list, this is the best list. Inn at Little Washington…Komi…Ashby Inn…Nava and Ruan! I still think Ruan has slipped just a bit, but it’s nice to see both places continue to get more or less well-deserved attention. Washingtonian continues to taunt me, though, in their capsule review of Ruan, where they highlight that dang Yum Watercress dish again. I really need to get in there and order that.
